The targets for the future are concentrated on the following considerations:
-Saving of resources, because they are limited
- Protection of the environment, because the humanity (mankind) has to survives.
We have to take into account the depletion of conventional raw materials, e.g. crude oil, coal, metals and nonmetals, because they will ran out during the next s years. But sun, wind and water energy are available for ever. Today we have to rely to the following energy carriers:
- Conventional carriers like crude oil and natural gas
But electricity has to be produced by sun, water and wind energy. As long as mechanical devices for the production of electricity are needed we have to take into account tribological systems with friction, wear and lubrication aspects.
